VR setup

People who have their Omni...
1) VR Boom or an alternative - necessary? if you used an alternative/made your own what did you use?
2) Graphics card: 970 enough to get by? Adjusting the super-sampling if needed?

    Some method to hang cord overhead is a must. For a quick fix I put a small hook in ceiling and hung a coat hanger from it and run the cable through bottom of hanger. This allows it to move enough where it isn't tugging on you, and I hang the Rift/Vive from strap by hook on the coat hanger. Was planning something more elaborate, but this works so well I might just stick with it.
    I use an I7 3820 with a GTX 970 and 16 gig ram. With this setup all games run fine, and I have never adjusted super-sampling. Only game that shows occasional frame bumps is Elite Dangerous, but even that is only when loading new systems. Unless you can get a good deal on a used GTX 970, at this point I would get a GTX 1060. It is slightly faster, uses less power, and is cheaper.

    Thank you both for your feedback. @Wombatcave I already have a 970, I will try sticking with it for now. @pittsburghjoe I hope you are right about "soon!" I cannot wait until the Wireless Vive add-on is available.

    Yes I will be purchasing the wireless adapter for the Vive as soon as it is available in US. We do a lot of room scale as well as the Omni. VR can't really take off until it is wireless.
